Characteristics of the Growth of
Christ's Kingdom, article on, by
Samuel Harris, D.D.; the pro-
gress is spiritual, 459; it is by the
instrumentality of the gospel, 460;

ed as philosophy, 461; progress
not to be promoted by force, 463;
progress without observation, 464;
progress providential, 465; remov-
ing of obstacles, 466; the growth
of certain interests and customs
favorable to the growth of God's
kingdom, 467; lessons taught by
this, 468; the progress of the king-
dom by epochs, 469; the epochs
not the growth, but the results of
the growth, 470; an epoch not

necessarily by violence, 470; the
kingdom not responsible for the
violence incidental to the epochs
in its progress, 471; this violence
an evil, 473; epochs not always
recognized as such, 473; the pro-
gress usually further than the
agents had intended, 474; epochs
necessitate new ideas and a new
policy, 475; progress cumulative,
476; a demonstration of Christi-
anity by its life-giving power, the
great want of the age, 478.

Christian Law of Service, The,
article on, by Samuel Harris,
D.D., 310; the principle on which
the Christian law of service rests,
310; the first aspect of this prin-
ciple, greatness for service, 311;
greatness carries in it the obli-
gation to service, 311; the ability,
the measure of the service, 311;
the applications of the law, both
to the choice of business and to the
use of its gains, 312; every legiti-
mate business a service to human-
ity, 313; exchanges under the law
of reciprocity give scope to Chris-
tian service, 314; legitimate busi-
ness a service because productive,
315; a man renders service in
business by improving its methods,
316; by exhibiting strict integrity
and a high sense of honor, 317;
a man's influence outside of his
business affected by his character
in his business, 317; the Christian
law of service as applied to his
use of the gains of business, 317;
reasons for the Christian law of
service, 318; the example of the
Saviour, 318; the law, in accord-
ance with our best instincts, 318;


greatness comes by service, 319;
a man by service attains the most
intrinsic greatness, the most influ-
ence, 319; the law accords with
enlightened self-interest, 320; the
character expressed in service
the noblest type of character, 320;
such service brings into action all
the energies, 321; great respon-
sibilities develop greatness, 322;
society attains its best condition
only as governed by the law of
love, 323; a man does business
most thoroughly when he does it
as a service for God, 323; evil
effects of work only for gain, 324;
especially to society, 325; the
dividing line between selfishness
and Christian benevolence, 327;
worldly business not necessarily
worldliness, 327; the law of ser-
vice not fulfilled by giving merely
a part of one's income, 329; the
line not to be drawn between
what one expends on himself and
what he gives away, 330; is a
Christian justified in expending
money on himself beyond the
necessaries of life? 330; a life of
indulgence, 331; a life of service
333; blessedness possible only in
the realization of moral ideas,
333; this type of life sometimes
one-sided and defective, 334; in
Christian civilization the moral
forces predominate, 325; the Chris-
tian life springs from the sense of
sin and condemnation, 336; the
advancement of Christ's kingdom,
diffusive, 336.

nominations, 542; how much shall
be embraced in a creed? 543; not
the same in all cases, 544; can a
church change its creed? 545.
